A dean at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., has been suspended for attacking women who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault on his Twitter account.
The Washington Post reports that the university’s president, John Garvey, confirmed the suspension of Will Rainford Friday evening in an email to campus that said Rainford would remain as head of the university’s school of social service.
The article goes on to state the following:
His letter followed Rainford’s tweets from a now-deleted Twitter handle, @NCSSSDean, that questioned the accounts of two of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Julie Swetnick and Christine Blasey Ford.
“Swetnick is 55 y/o,” he wrote Wednesday on Twitter, according to the Post. “Kavanaugh is 52 y/o. Since when do senior girls hang with freshmen boys? If it happened when Kavanaugh was a senior, Swetnick was an adult drinking with&by her admission, having sex with underage boys. In another universe, he would be victim & she the perp!”
This deleted tweet by Will Rainford, DEAN of @CatholicUniv’s National Catholic School of Social Service is SHAMEFUL. With the Catholic Church’s responsibility to survivors of sexual violence, I pray my alma mater takes appropriate action. This is DISGUSTING… (1/2) pic.twitter.com/TN8kV4hJTE
